The member of the K-pop group were welcomed by hundreds of fans who didn't keep the order in the airport of Santiago de Chile.
After delays in the flight which was bringing the members of the Kpop group JYJ to Chile, finally they arrived to the Southern caital in the middle of chaos, according to the reports of the fans who went to receive them at the airport. 

Through their facebook page, the fan club informed that even although they were well organised at the beginning to avoid the mess, there was a rumour about a change in the exit JYJ would use after taking off.
According to JYJ Fans Chile, that provoked the chaos at the airport, as the human barrier created to protect them was broken.

"The boys crossed the screen area and people run to see them. Few guards went there. Chilean policemen just looked, nothing else and they didn't help at all", they describe in their Facebook page. 

"Yoochun was the first one who left and he got in the car quickly. After him, there was Junsu's, who seemed very tired and scared. Jaejoong was the last one and he was smiling," they added.

At the end of the 2011-2012 World Tour by popular South Korean K-Pop group, JYJ, the group arrived in Santiago, Chile to present a concert before thousands of fans.
According to them, this tour through South America has a special meaning for them, for they have produced these concerts specifically for their Latin American fans.
"We are very delighted to have been able to keep our promise to our fans and will prepare a spectacular show to correspond with the passion of Latin America," remarked the K-Pop idols before the press.
"The countries are very distant from each other, it's a 30 hour flight. Also, even though that the countries a very far from each other, we have always believed to have been very close," they further added.
Press Conference
During the press conference, the boys voiced their opinion against piracy, arguing that the issue not only "affects" them as a group, but also other groups who strive to succeed.
In regards to Chile, Jaejoong, Yoochun y Junsu confessed that had imagined a very different country. The artists felt that the metropolitan capital was actually a rather calm town.
One of the characteristics that has really grabbed their attention is the Chilean culture. For example, they mentioned the reaction of a fan who was waiting anxiously for them at the airport and upon seeing them coming, came to embrace warmly, a practice not common on the other side of the world.
The members of JYJ stated that they did not expect to find such a large number of fans. The South Korean idols are happy to see that the K-Pop has expanded successfully into the world.
Finally, they emphasized that for them music is a language without borders "that unites all."

Baekho, "I do Komdo for 7 years and i'm an expert on it. I like Komdo, And i really want to be a singer, But because i live in Countryside, I don't know how to be a singer. But i accidentally join a casting, and now i came (to Seoul) to practicing"

When Big Bang sunbaenims performing, it seems like they enjoys it a lot and also, they're really interactive with fans. We even think 'I hope we can do as well as them'. All sunbaenims really give an influences to us. I really inspirated, and i will work harder to do it together with a great sunbaenims."

When people listen to our song, We want people to say 'Seems like I know this song'. When people listening to our song , i really want to hear 'It's NU'EST Style' from them".

[NEWS] Big Bang’s ‘Comeback Show’ vs. KBS’ Music Bank – Who Will Emerge the Victor?

Posted: 09 Mar 2012 04:04 AM PST


It's a battle for viewership ratings!

SBS' special broadcast of Big Bang's Big Bang Comeback Show will be airing opposite KBS' weekly Music Bank on March 9 at 6 pm (KST) and 6:10 pm respectively.

The Big Bang Comeback Show will be mainly be composed of Big Bang's concert performances from its recent Big Show concerts, which were held from March 2 through March 4, in support of Big Bang's newest mini album, Alive. T

While some 39,000 fans attended the concerts, the performances and behind the scenes footage were all captured by SBS′ cameras for all those who were unable to attend the concert - and even for those who just wanted to relive the joy of seeing Big Bang back on stage.

However SBS' Big Bang Comeback Show is set to air at the same time opposite KBS' weekly Music Bank leaving viewers torn over which show they will watch.

In one corner is Big Bang, one of the biggest groups of K-Pop, who′s returned after a year and a half break, filled with tumultuous events. The group's recent concert was met with rave reviews by those who attended, raising the anticipation for those who have only been able to experience the new album through songs and music videos.

In the other is Music Bank, which boasts a mighty line-up of some 25 teams, including miss A, MBLAQ, FT Island, Tony An, John Park, Nine Muses and more.

Given the rather shaky relationship KBS has with Big Bang's agency, YG Entertainment, some are questioning if the decision to pit Big Bang's show against KBS was done as an intentional snub. Regardless of the motive though, many are agreeing it's going to be a tough call to make that night.
